Welcome aboard! There are probably as many "favorite shows" as people here, so I would direct you to a couple resources. First, check the list of shows on the "Staff Picks" and "Most Downloaded" column.
I also recommend the excellent blogspot "Grateful Dead Listening Guide"

http://deadlistening.blogspot.com/2009/09/1977-february-26-swing-auditorium.html

Here are other places to check for recommendations:

http://gratefuldeadprojects.com/index.html

http://www.themusicarchive.com/garcia/dead-1a.htm

It's a good start!
